If you are a yoga enthusiast, and you want to ensure that you look just as good in yoga class as you do when you aren’t working out, but you also want to ensure you are able to stay as comfortable as possible and complete all o the asanas as effectively as possible, you might be wondering what you should wear.
With that in mind, I’ve put together some quick tips to help you dress right for yoga whether you are a newbie, someone who is undergoing their 200-hour yoga teacher training certification, or a seasoned yoga teacher. You totally can look great and dress to support your yoga practices too, as you will see below.
Go for a breathable material
First and foremost, you will want to ensure that you are comfortable when practicing your downward dog or perfecting your crow pose, and that means you should aim to dress in breathable materials such as bamboo or cotton fashions, which will wick moisture and enable you to feel cool and comfy even if it does get as bt hot and sweaty in the studio.
Leggings are best
When it comes to trousers, when you are hitting up the yoga class, you can go for baggy sports pants or leggings. Most women will find that leggings are generally the better choice of the two, not only because they fit the form and do not get in the way, but also because they tend to be more flattering on women of all sizes.
If you are someone who tends to prefer to working out in baggy t-shirts, you might want to consider when it comes to your yoga outfit. Obviously, baggy tops will ride up and fall over your head when you are doing various yoga poses that force you to stand on your head or turn upside down, which could interfere with your modesty and make it difficult for you to stay calm and hold your poses.
That is why most women do yoga in a fitted sports bra, crop top, or vest. If that is not your thing, you can buy wraparound yoga tops, which you can tie in place, which will not get in the way as you practice your asanas. These are great for women who want to look a bit more sophisticated at the studio.
A messy bun
Putting your hair in a messy bun is not only a quick way to ensure that your hair looks good, but it will also ensure that your locks are safely out of the easy when you are exercising. Yoga often forces you to adopt positions that would otherwise have your hair falling in your eyes or pressing into the back of your head, but with a messy bun worn high on the head, this is no longer an issue.
Dressing for yoga should be more about your comfort than your style, but as you can see, it is perfectly possible to look and feel great in the yoga studio!
